Cinnamon Glazed Scones

Holy busy weekend! It feels like we've been on the move all weekend long, I'm so ready to relax a little bit tonight. Our 5 year-old had her dance performance last night, it's been sort of crazy with all of the extra practices including almost five hours of dress rehearsal Friday night. It was so worth it all though, to see her up there on stage last night! All of the girls did amazing, it was an awesome show they put on!

Look what I made this morning. Scones! And they were really easy too. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to make my first batch, they are easy peasy.

I went pretty simple this morning, I figured my family would for sure enjoy one with a crunchy cinnamon/sugar topping and vanilla glaze. Think cinnamon rolls! I also incorporated some bread flour and loved the texture. I can't wait to try some new varieties, strawberries should be ready to be picked soon, I think those are next on the list!

Cinnamon Glazed Scones

1 c all-purpose flour
1 c bread flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter, cubed
1 egg, separated
3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c buttermilk, plus 1-2 tbsp more

2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

1 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
splash of milk for thinning

In a large bowl combine both flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly. In another bowl, combine egg yolk (set egg white aside), honey, vanilla and buttermilk. Mix together well. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add an additional tablespoon of buttermilk if needed, I added about 2 tbsp.

Use your hands to help knead dough together then turn onto a floured surface. Form into an 8 inch circle and roll out to 1 inch thick. Cut into eight wedges. Place on a greased baking sheet. Whisk egg white until frothy and brush onto scones. Combine the cinnamon and sugar topping and sprinkle onto scones. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk in a bowl, whisk together until icing is formed. When scones are done, remove from oven, let cool for about 5 minutes and then drizzle with icing.
